Poured into a DFH shaped pint glass.
A- Pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow body with a 2-finger white head. Head shows pretty good retention but very good lace.
S- Awesome! Amazing citrus hops up front with big pine notes as well. A great smelling IPA, one of the best I've smelled. Grapefruit and pineapple really stand out.
T- Again, big hop punch of grapefruit and pineapple, and very nice bitter pine. A little sweetness comes through, but mostly the hop bite. Bitterness in the end lingers a little while.
MF/D- Medium bodied with a taste that lingers for a while on the palate. Very drinkable in the sense that I'd have no trouble enjoying a couple, but the palate killer this hop bomb is would probobly keep you from having more than that.

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass.
A: Mostly translucent gold coloring with a very minimal head.
S: Some light pine and citrus hop aromas take over the glass pretty much immediately.
T: Pine and citrus are immediate, followed by a sticky hop finish that has you going right back in for another sip. The hop characteristics permeate every bit of the beer.
M: Crisp, clean finish with mild carbonation. Not overly heavy at all, despite a solid ABV (7.5%).
O: Flower Power is among my favorite beers, IPA or otherwise. It inhabits its own unique place in the East Coast IPA range (not being overly malty or hoppy) and would contend with the best from the opposite coast as well. Best of all, it's readily available in the Northeast. Drink as much as you can.
